Unalaskans are still looking for Willy Robinson, an island resident who went missing last week while fishing in Captains Bay.

While police called off their two-day search last Thursday and described the likelihood of finding Robinson alive as "very, very slim," his family and friends are hoping to recover his body.

Police say the disappearance of Unalaska resident Willy Robinson likely stemmed from an incident in the waters of Captains Bay.

The exact circumstances are a "mystery," according to Acting Director Jennifer Shockley of the Department of Public Safety.

But investigators who searched the island where Robinson was fishing this weekend found no signs of foul play or an emergency on land.

Police have arrested an Unalaska man and confiscated several firearms from his home in the community's second recent incident involving threats of gun violence.

The Department of Public Safety took James Greene, 26, into custody Monday — the same day he allegedly threatened to harm at least two people during a domestic situation that spilled into public spaces.

An Unalaska man was arrested Monday for making threats against two people and "the occupants of a local organization," according to a statement from the Department of Public Safety.

Acting Police Chief Jennifer Shockley said the arrest is unconnected to a July incident in which two Unalaska teenagers allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun.

The state has filed charges against two Unalaska teenagers who allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun this July.

That's likely all the information Unalaskans will get about the case — unless it moves to the adult court system.

The rest of the details remain confidential under Alaska law.
